Yesterday you learned how to update your Facebook status via text message. If your phone has a camera, you can do more than that: Facebook lets you add photos and even videos to your profile via e-mail.

You don't necessarily have to use a phone for this; you can just as easily e-mail your stuff to Facebook from a PC if it's easier than using Facebook proper. (Or maybe you're using a work PC that blocks social-networking sites.)

Here's how to get going with Facebook via e-mail:

1. Head to (You'll need to sign into your account if you haven't already.

2. Look under Upload Photos via Email for your personalized mobile-Facebook e-mail address. (Mine is a really bizarre string of random words and numbers.)

3. Add this "upload address" to your contact list, or click Send my upload email to me now to have it sent to wherever you routinely check your mail. (Not much of a time-saver, but it might be easier than typing the address into your phone.)

4. Now just compose a new e-mail with the photo or video attached. Address it to your Facebook address, and use the subject line for whatever caption you want.

Click Send and presto! The media lands straight in your Facebook profile. By default, the site makes these uploads public, so hit Facebook's settings if you want to change that.
